I'm trying to run a Joomla 1.7 install on COS 5.2 SP1 and while the basic setup works, there are some plugins that require mysql 5.1 AT LEAST.. So, i'm looking for any info on upgrading mysql to 5.1.

Anyone tried it or actualy done it? Not really looking for a step by step recipe here (dont mind if its so either). Just want to make sure i wont break anything.

    Hi Mihai,

    I have tried a few things on several virtual machines, but always ended up breaking up something. I have not found any documentation on this and I have not kept any info on my attempts. I honestly gave up on it hoping the new version of ClearOS would be out soon. At this point, i have no hopes of safely getting a newer mysql version on COS 5.2

    If its sensitive, I would suggest you try to build a database server, maybe even a dedicated server. Keeping our data safe is far more important than gettting it all going on one single install.

    Rodrigo.

    I would badly need even a line by line tutorial.
    I need to upgrade a very sensitive database from 5.0.77 to 5.1 and I cannot find any info on how to upgrade in ClearOS.

    Thanks in advance.
